When ADOPTING A FRIEND from Lakota Animal Care you'll be giving a home to a pet from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The Lakota Animal Caregivers work with tribal members who no longer wish to keep their pets, these animals are surrendered to Lakota Animal Care and fostered in homes throughout the country until a permanent placement is made.
WHO WE ARE at Lakota Lakota Animal Care: A community-based effort to provide basic animal health care for dogs, cats and horses on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Tribal members from our communities are trained as Lakota Animal Care Givers to help improve the wellbeing of all our community members, of all our relations. We work in teams of two and operate out of a minivan equipped as our mobile unit which we use to get around to provide mange treatment, vaccinations, flea and tick treatments, basic wound care, deworming, and, when needed and possible, emergency transport to the nearest veterinarian. Pets available for adoption on this site were surrendered to Lakota Animal Care and are looking for a new forever home.
Come Meet our Pets:
We do adoption events about once a month at Petco in Rapid City. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about our current pets available for adoption, or info about our upcoming adoption events.
Our Adoption Process:
We require an approved adoption application with references and a home visit. Our adoption fees are generally $50, plus an additional $90 spay/neuter deposit for puppies under four months of age that have not already been spayed or neutered.
